  1. I've looked for some examples about to complete the fields from headertag seo, but I didn't find it. I would ask someone to give me an example for the following:

    Product Title Tag:

    Product Description Tag:

    Product Keywords Tag:

    Product Listing Text:

    Product Page Sub Text:

    Products Model:

    Products Weight:80 or 80mg?

    Thank you

  2. Hi Alex,


    Normally you do not need an account anymore to pay with paypal with either of the x 2 paypal options.


    You actually never did just PayPal hid the option on the login screen to gain more registered users.


    I do believe though that this is country specific with probably Europe and USA being ok but maybe problems with other country's.


    As regards PayPal (including Credit and Debit Cards) Yes noticed myself should read PayPal express this can be changed in language folder.


    Regards Joli


    They hide the direct credit card options but even there they ask for paypal account:

    "Choose a way to pay:

    1.Pay with my PayPal account

    Log in to your PayPal account to complete the purchase

    2.Create a PayPal account

    And pay with your debit or credit card.With a PayPal account, you don't need to re-enter your card details each time you pay. "




    I succeded to change the second text PayPal (including Credit and Debit Cards).

    Many many thanks for your help.

  3. OSC 2.3.3.

    I already setup succesfully for my store:

    PayPal Website Payments Standard and

    PayPal Express Checkout


    When the client want to pay, he can choice between the 2 options above, which they appear like this:

    PayPal (including Credit and Debit Cards) and

    PayPal (including Credit and Debit Cards)


    1.My question is, why is the same name and it doesn't appear any diference between that 2 methods?

    2.I've read that for express checkout is not necessary a paypal account. Despite of this, the method ask for paypal account.Why?

    3.Is any other method for customer to pay through paypal with credit card, but without to create an paypal account?

  4. I've installed french language and on the main page it appears:

    Bienvenue chez ...my site...


    Title ao�t


    How can I corect the title?I've searched on include/language/french/index.php, but is not there. I've also looked in admin page/modules/front page, but from here I can only remove the title:

    French Title

    Title %s

  5. Zones are added from the Admin under Location/Taxes then Tax Zones.


    You create the zone as needed. For example name the zone USA Shipping, then click insert. Click the newly created USA Shipping Folder and add the location (USA) and the states that you want to ship to.


    Then, when you configure your shipping modules, such as flat rate......you would choose the USA Shipping Zone for that rate. Remember you can create multiple flat rate shipping and table rate files by duplicating and renaming the files.





    How to create multiple flat rate shipping?The module is installed, and have just one option to edit.Their name cannot be replaced.I can change only this:

    Enable Item Shipping

    Do you want to offer per item rate shipping?





    Shipping Cost

    The shipping cost will be multiplied by the number of items in an order that uses this shipping method.



    Handling Fee

    Handling fee for this shipping method.



    Tax Class

    Use the following tax class on the shipping fee.



    Shipping Zone

    If a zone is selected, only enable this shipping method for that zone.



    Sort Order

    Sort order of display.

  6. Yes it's clear now and many thanks for answer.

    I received the following message from customer:

    "Terminated order as was not happy with PayPal policy on information disclosure. Is

    there a mechanism to purchase Biosept with debit card via yourselves?"

    It seems that paypal policy disclosure isn't agreed, so I have to add a module for debit card. I tried a few month with 2 checkout but they are limiting the transactions from natural herbs shops, so I have to find another one.

    Can you recomend me another provider well known in UK?

    Many thanks in advanced


  7. I received the first client registration and the first order through paypal standard payment:

    client 1 28.72EUR 08/13/2013 12:45:55 Preparing [PayPal Standard]

    The problem is that I didn't receive any money on my paypal business account.I can see that status of payment is preparing status.Should I wait till I see paypal delivery?

    Should I forget something in my settings for paypal module:

    Enable PayPal Website Payments Standard

    Set Preparing Order Status

    Preparing [PayPal Standard]


    Set PayPal Acknowledged Order Status

    That means it is not working.

    Try the test here, and see the results



    On another note @@FWR Media

    I am having issues with characters appearing as strange symbols. Mainly the apostrophe and Quotations in my Product Description.

    example: http://mtrosemedia.tk/store/product_info.php/the-father-wants-you-home-p-58

    Those should be quotes or apostrophes

    I have product tabs and product info box installed


    Thx for answer. Now I think is ok even I cannot return at the last page. I suppose is important to get that "working" , and in main page is normal to receive the message:


    Products meeting the search criteria


    There is no product that matches the search criteria.

  12. I supposed that there are diferences between add ons and each has their features.To some of you like some add on.These answers were enough for me to make an opinion about that and not to looks for days in all the add ons.

    Thank you told me that Paypal standard is one of the best.


    Now I have the ideea more cleary:Mayby we can put at the top of this subforum a small survey,where we can vote for each payment module and from this everybody can see which are the best add on (built and useful).

  13. "Best" is very subjective. What's best for you, may not be best for Mr Pink, may not be best for Mr Black.


    Paypal Standard is better in my opinion than Paypal Express. Someone else might say Paypal Express is better than Paypal Standard.


    It is down to you to decide which is the best for your shop, maybe by testing them out in a live situation.

    Best I mean no bugs and more features.Thx for answer.

  14. At payment modules subforum, it would be better to have, at the top side,a permanent post something like this:"Please read me first" ,and to find there the minimum instructions about which are the latest/best/enough add ons if you choice to install Paypal, or 2checkout or the others. For example, I need to install payment modules for selling in US,EU and Japan,and I am really don't know what to choice. At paypal I installed first Paypal IPN, then somebody indicate me Paypal checkout.I saw there is Paypal checkout express. Which one is the best?I don't know.I am a new here, and each new comers can be helped with this "read me first" updated.

    Else, I need to read from the scratch thousand of pages, to test hundreds of add ons, and these can last at least one year, or till my enthusiasm will be dissapered. I don't want to give up, so I need advice about payment modules.What to choice in my case?

  15. Hello,


    Two question please:

    1.Is any payment module for payment through a company who don't ask me for so many details information?For example 2checkout ask me to send info about passport,ID car, personal ID,ID of the company,detail information about partners, and utilities for last 6 months. I use now only Paypal, but I need something for direct payment with Visa,Master,..card.

    2.For a OScommerce dedicate to japan, what payment module should I add on, to be familiar for their local checkout?Thanks to all.

  16. I try to install this add on last version,but at step 6 I was blocked because I didn't find

    I also have installed FWR Media Ultimate.Please help me.

    It's not the suitable add on version?


  18. The bookmarks are already on the home page, categories, manufacturers and product pages (if installed correctly). If you want them on the contact us page, for example, then you would edit the contact us file. You have to figure out where to place it since there are too many code variations to offer such support here.


    What you put in the various settings is up to you. There are included files that try to help with that but it is a subject for SEO. This thread is just for a the tool that lets you setup the SEO.


    Ok but I don't have any ideea about what to put inside all Meta tag information fields from any products.For this reason I asked for an example.It would be very useful for me and for new comers.

  19. @@DavidPolo - Your'e welcome.


    @@alexman - You made a mistake in the edits. It looks like you are missing a php delimiter and that you included instructions in the edit. You can compare your file to the included one to see where you went wrong.


    Many thanks for your answer.Indeed you have right.I checked again and finally I found the mistake.

    Regarding the note below from the bottom of "install catalog", please tell me if should I insert it and where to put exactly?In any page from the files added from Header tag folder add on?




    The bookmarks code can be added to any page by inserting the following anywhere on the page.

    To have it display properly, it should generally be inserted after a </tr>.


    <!--- BEGIN Header Tags SEO Social Bookmarks -->


    include(DIR_WS_MODULES . 'header_tags_social_bookmarks.php');



    <!--- END Header Tags SEO Social Bookmarks -->

  20. After Installed Header tags add on, I added a new product(prooduct A), and on my web site when I select to see that product , below picture and description it appears the following:



    !--- BEGIN Header Tags SEO Social Bookmarks -->

    facebook and all the icons


    Currently viewing: product A

    NOTE 1: The placement of this is not critical. Anywhere near the bottom of the page is fine as long as the layout of the page is correct."




    How to solve this?I checked the installation and found no mistakes.


  21. Then you've made a mistake in the installation because this addon is for the shop side only.

    I restore backup over what I already have and in administration tool I found added SEO URL but with the information that in general.php is a problem at line 1281. I reinstalled there and SEO work perfectly.It seems is a good way to guide by the error messeges directly in administration tool.
